A green breakfast smoothie that’s not too green.

Let’s not kid ourselves—“healthy” smoothies are rarely, if ever, as delicious as they are good for you. So, to remedy that, we asked our friends at MindBodyPlate for a body-conscious recipe that readers would enjoy. Here’s what they came up with. It balances the kale/spinach “grassiness” with creamy avocado, sweet banana, and icy frozen strawberries.  The end result is a green shake so lovably mint colored that you’d probably enjoy it regardless of the taste—which is delicious, so no.

Berry Green Smoothie  (makes 1-2 servings)

2 large handfuls of kale and/or spinach

1/4 of an avocado

1/2 banana

1 cup frozen strawberries

1 tablespoon almond butter

1 cup almond milk

1 cup water

*Blend and enjoy!
